                              Pavement outside Railway Wharf, Station Road
At present this pavement (in front of Ciao Bella and Motorsport Worldwide) is NOT a public right of way. Wrington Parish Council wants to apply to North Somerset Council to change this but we need your help.

There have been recent planning applications at the property which, if they had been approved, would have meant that the pavement could no longer be used as a safe walk way by pedestrians. A letter explaining more about this is below.

If you use this pavement regularly and feel that it is important to retain it, we would be most grateful if you could complete a Public Right of Way User Evidence Statement, marking the location of the pavement on the map at the end of the form. The letter and Statement will be delivered to houses near Railway Wharf and should be available in local shops soon. If you have any problems completing the form or would like a copy emailed to you please contact us. Completed forms should be returned to us by the end of September.

19/09/19 7164 CN201-CS226, Bristol, Somerset Avoiding Burglaries

We have seen a number of burglaries across the force area where the offenders have targeted homes while the residents are on holiday. There are a number of things you can do to make your home look occupied.

As the nights are starting to draw-in, the most important thing to prevent burglary is to make the home look as if it’s occupied. The use of lights on timer switches is recommended, and if you can also put one on a radio tuned to a talk station that will also make it sound like someone is in, and having a conversation. Fake TV lights are now available, which gives the impression that someone is watching television, and these can work really well if you have them in an upstairs bedroom.

Ensure that all doors and windows are closed and properly locked – use a key, don’t just lift the door handle. Take the keys out of the door when it’s locked and put them somewhere out of sight and reach, but make sure all the residents know where they are kept in case of emergency.

Sheds, garages and outbuildings are popular targets for burglars, so increase the security to these whenever possible. Check that the contents of these places are included on our home and contents insurance.

Register your belongings on the Immobilise property register. If anything lost or stolen is handed to the police you have a good chance of getting your property returned.

Restrict access to the rear of your property wherever possible – lock any side gates leading to the rear – as the back or patio doors are the most popular site of forced entry. Think about growing some thorny bushes along the garden fencing

Lock away ladders or any tools that could help a burglar, and secure any garden furniture or wheelie bins that can be moved to help gain access to an extension or first floor window

If you’re taking the car with you, ask a neighbour to use your driveway while you are away to make the home look occupied.

Cut the lawn and keep the garden tidy. Long grass suggests that the house is empty or the occupant is unable to look after the garden.

Consider installing a burglar alarm – they are a real deterrent – but get an approved or recommended model, as the cheap ones aren’t really that reliable and if the alarm keeps going off your neighbours will soon lose interest and may ignore a real activation.

Don’t forget to cancel any milk or newspaper deliveries, and postpone ordering anything that may arrive while you’re away
